        Learned about this lib on https://perf.rocks. Until we have something like the BTC License I don't see how a FOSS offering could do better than this puppy, which is using FOSS licenses anyway but, as per Holly, somehow hamstringed.

        Unfortunately BPG will be patent encumbered for the next two decades, which makes it DOA as a web standard (especially when there are established royalty free competitors).

        This would be great! Smaller sizes, most devices will be able to hardware decode this and it's developed independent and with LGPL license.
